It's getting to be that Michael Phelps has as many magazine covers as medals. The latest? He's the cover model for Golf Digest's December issue. Last month the magazine wrote about Phelps sinking an incredible, 159-foot putt at the Dunhill Links in Scotland. The magazine estimated it might have been the longest putt ever televised. So he might just have earned that spot on the cover.  Phelps has been getting some attention for his swing as he studies with Hank Haney, an effort that will be televised on The Golf Channel's "The Haney Project" in February.

Michael Phelps generated some buzz at the World Swimming Championships in Barcelona this week when he was non-committal to the latest media inquiries about his future. Since he wouldn't specifically rule out one more attempt to add to his medal collection at the next Olympics, it's probably fair to wonder if he is no longer so certain about staying retired. "I don't know what's going to happen in the future," Phelps told the Associated Press on Monday. "I don't know what's going to happen tomorrow.

No pact, no problem Diane Pucin Los Angeles Times Maybe Tiger Woods should write a book about Hank Haney. Maybe he should just be quiet until he actually reads Hank Haney's book, "The Big Miss," that will be released March 27, the beginning of Masters week, and it is about the six years when Haney was Woods' swing coach. Unless Woods or his more likely his agent Mark Steinberg, have Haney's signature on a non-disclosure agreement, well, too bad Tiger.

Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan teed off against each other on the golf course at the 12th annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas this weekend. Jordan, a six-time NBA champion and a five-time Most Valuable Player, has spent a lot of time on the golf course since his third -- or was it fourth? -- retirement from the NBA. He shot a 73 in his round against Phelps. But Phelps fired an even-par 72 to beat Jordan by a stroke in their round together, according to Yahoo!

We know what Michael Phelps is going to do next. Golf anyone? Fresh off of winning six medals at the London Olympics, Phelps is going to tackle the world's best golf courses with help from the Golf Channel. The Baltimore swimmer, who says he has retired from competitive swimming after winning 22 career medals, including 18 golds, will learn the game from Tiger Woods' former coach, Hank Haney, as the next student on "The Haney Project," a Golf Channel show. Phelps and Golf Channel president Mike McCarley made the announcement Saturday . Past pupils on Haney's show have included former NBA star Charles Barkley, Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine and actor Ray Romano, according to the network.

It was a small victory, sure, but you have to start somewhere. Tiger Woods and "big brother" Mark O'Meara reunited to capture the Dubai Desert Classic's Challenge Match — a par-3 undercard to this week's European Tour stop that never lacks for the game's brightest jewels. Whether that translates to flashier headlines remains to be seen. If there's a place on the golf map where Woods has enjoyed a comfort zone, it's the Emirates Golf Club. In five trips to the desert haven, he has won twice and never finished outside the top five.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Now it all makes sense. For months golf's No. 1 ranking has sat there on a platter, ready to be consumed by Phil Mickelson. But based on Mickelson's play, you might have wondered whether he actually wanted to overtake Tiger Woods as the world's greatest player. Now we know otherwise. Mickelson revealed Tuesday at the PGA Championship that he is being treated for a form of arthritis that left him so debilitated, he could not get out of bed during a family vacation to Hawaii in late June.

The way Tiger Woods sees it, the makeover is no more radical than a baseball player showing up with a new batting stance. Hands high, hands low. Upright or hunched, open stance or closed. Same instrument, different style. Cal Ripken Jr. 's many stances never endured such scrutiny whenever he went 1-for-14 in a weekend. Then again, the insight Woods offered last week had the effect of hearing David Ortiz was being converted to a singles hitter. "I have to change everything," Woods said in one of his more unguarded revelations.

“I'm 27. I'm retired. But I still want to compete.” That's Olympic champion Michael Phelps talking in “The Haney Project,” a Golf Channel series that stars Tiger Woods' one-time coach taking on a new celebrity student each season. Phelps' words pretty much summarize the premise of this year's edition, which starts Monday night. In the past, Hank Haney's celebrity pupils have included Ray Romano, Rush Limbaugh, Charles Barkley and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine. This season, the student is the swimmer from Baltimore who won 18 gold medals in Olympic competition.

- When Tiger Woods broke a 2 - 1/2 year drought without an official PGA Tour victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March, it didn't come down to a crucial putt as in 2009. Woods, much like he did when he was the most dominant player on the planet, won by five shots. When Woods backed up that win with another at the Memorial Tournament last month, matching host and fellow legend Jack Nicklaus for second place behind Sam Snead with 73 PGA Tour victories, it was a miraculous chip-in from the 16th green that Sunday which pushed him into the lead.

BETHESDA - A victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March seemed to signal Tiger Woods' return to a short list of the world's best golfers. His five-shot win was reminiscent of what Woods had done for more than a decade - right down to the signature fist pump. That victory - his first in 2 ½ years on the PGA Tour and his 72nd overall - seems almost as distant as his last major championship, nearly four years ago at theU.S. Open. The win has been quickly overshadowed by what has been the worst three-tournament stretch of Woods' legendary career.

This is how the relationship began with Hank Haney too. Recently divorced from his swing coach, Tiger Woods tries going it alone with limited success. Eventually, a new guy starts turning up during Woods' practice rounds — his playing partner's swing coach. Nothing going on. Really. He's the other guy's coach. OK, maybe the occasional once-over from a second set of eyes. Then months later, formal confirmation arrives via fan letter or blog post. Somewhere on this timeline now stands Sean Foley, who just happens to coach two of the PGA Tour's four multiple winners this year, Justin Rose and Hunter Mahan.
